Music legend Paul McCartney and New York businesswoman Nancy Shevell exchanged vows during an afternoon ceremony in London’s Old Marylebone Town Hall, which was opened especially for the event. The bride and groom both wore outfits designed by Paul’s daughter, Stella McCartney. The couple began dating in 2007 and announced their engagement in May, 2011. Paul proposed to Nancy with a flawless 5-carat diamond and platinum Art Deco ring from celebrity jewellery designer Neil Lane. A row of black onyx gemstones flows down the shank on each side of the ring.
During the non-denominational wedding ceremony, McCartney gave his bride a vintage-style Neil Lane diamond eternity band featuring 5-carats of square cut diamonds set in platinum. Says Neil Lane, “Paul is an artist. When we worked on the engagement ring, he took it seriously and was into the stones, shapes and styles — like a kid in a candy store. I could see him imagining what it would look like on Nancy’s finger.”
